Clowney Makes Jets, But Breaks Collarbone


Former Virginia Tech wide receiver David Clowney has survived cuts and made the New York Jets.  Although DC did make the team, he did not really survive the preseason, as he is sitting out an extended period of time with a broken collarbone.

Clowney played great for the first two preseason game for the J E T S, JETS.  Until he landed weird on his shoulder in the second preseason game and went out of the game.  He later found out that his collarbone was broken.  

Number 17, DC looked great in camp and preseason and showed his sure hands throughout.  I only saw him drop one pass throughout his preseason appearances.  He scored two TD's and had a great first game, gaining over 134 yards.  DC hails from Long Island, NY and looked comfortable in NYC.  He should be back this season, ready to catch balls from Brett Favre.  Although he is behind Laverneus Coles, Jericho Cotchery, Brad Smith, and Chansi Stuckey, he will certainly see some game time action after proving he can hang this preseason.
